Pours to a thick light brown head and black color. Aroma is dark cherries, vanilla and tons of mocha and a bit of bread and smoke. Flavor is smooth, creamy, roasty and damn delicious with a soft vanilla and hop finish. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Overall an outstanding imperial stout.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Feb 2016. Purchased ages ago from the York Beer & Wine shop and stored carefully. The label promises a rich, black ale with coffee, chocolate and dried fruit flavours. I've wanted to sample a brew from these guys for ages - here goes.....

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A very dark brown hue that appears ultra-black in the glass. Produces a decent head of creamy mocha foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of intense roasted malt with notes of coffee, burnt grain, cocoa, molasses, prunes, dried fruit, a touch of vanilla, mild smokiness, earthy yeast and faint stewed leaves. A hint of warming booze in the background. Simply superb.

T: Tastes of supremely decadent roasted malt with a complex character and a powerful bitter finish. Notes of coffee, burnt grain, dark malt, cocoa, molasses, dried fruit, fruitcake, subtle smokiness, a twinge of vanilla, earthy yeast and stewed leaves. A whisper of alcohol in the background. Slightly sweet, followed by a strident, malt-driven bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with soft carbonation and fantastic body. Stimulates the palate, though could be a tad livelier. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of rich roasted malt, coffee/chocolate, fruitiness and bitter burnt notes.

O: Excellent - a monster stout with an amazing character. It looks great, while the aroma and flavour are replete with roasted malt, coffee and dried fruit. Complex and bitter. Lovely creamy body. A top-notch imperial stout; Nøgne Ø have outclassed themselves. Add this to your must-try list.
